Hoffmann Brothers Water Heater Contractors Tankless Water Heater- FAQ


What is a tankless water heater?

Tankless water heaters provide instantaneous on-demand hot water, by heating water only as it is demanded. When hot water is turned on at the source, cold water travels through a pipe into the tankless unit. In a gas-fired Noritz tankless water heater, a gas burner heats the water. This allows tankless water heaters to supply a constant flow of hot water and when sized correctly they are able to supply enough hot water for simultaneous, multiple uses in both residential and commercial buildings.

What is a heat exchanger?

 The heat exchanger is where the water is heated up by the Noritz dual flame burners, it is also where most of the stress in a tankless water heater occurs. For this reason, the Noritz Tankless Water Heater utilizes a heat exchanger with 25% thicker copper piping.  This way the heat exchanger’s quality and durability is not compromised.


Why do tankless water heaters cost more than a tank water heater?

 Noritz tankless water heaters are built to last up to 20 years and are manufactured using copper and stainless steel.  With a tankless hot water heater you will experience lower operating costs and save money on utility bills because it only heats the water when you call for it rather than all the time. But remember tax credits and other rebates can help offset the cost of installing a Noritz tankless water heater.
